Preparing for your trek
To make the most of your climbing experience we encourage you to work on your fitness prior to the trip. You will find that training on hills with a 5-7kg pack on is the best preparation for the mountains, with the aim of building your endurance. Your guide will be attuned to your fitness levels and will regulate the pace accordingly.
Level of Experience Required
To trek in the European Alps, you will need to have a good level of fitness and be able to walk between 6-8 hours per day, mostly trekking along single track paths but do expect uneven ground when trekking at the higher elevations and over passes.
It is imperative that you are pack fit for the trekking days, as this will make all of the difference as to your enjoyment on the tour.
